African Mosaique's history is one of celebration, creativity, and intercontinental cooperation. It is about creating a collective culture, showing African inspiration and skill, and creating and showcasing top-notch items that are sourced, designed, and developed in Africa.

African Mosaique, AM is a fashion and design firm with headquarters in Africa.

African Mosaique was developed and launched with the intention of taking the lead in enabling Africa to realise its full creative potential. By capitalising on the value of tradition, history, heritage, and creativity that has largely gone untapped despite the availability of raw materials and skilled designers and artisans, we hope to expand the business and significantly benefit the African economy.

Consumer markets are becoming more interested in the histories and origins of the goods they buy. With Ethiopia serving as the launchpad and regional hub, the African Mosaique business model and value proposition would move away from the conventional outsourcing to low-cost labor-Africa narrative. Instead, it would tell the tale of how African entrepreneurs pooled their resources to create a network and a leading global fashion brand.
